Watch: Young Cubs fan very excited to receive Kris Bryant card
Kris Bryant started the week off strong with a three home run, two double game and followed it up with a game-winning hit in the 15th inning the next night, which got Cubs fans even more excited about the reigning Rookie of the Year.
You would be hard pressed to find any fan of the team who loves Bryant as much as young Eli though, who was cruising through his newest pack of Topps baseball stickers when he saw the third baseman and nearly lost his mind with joy.
Eli’s adorable reaction to the newest addition to his collection even caught the attention of Bryant himself, in addition to Topps, which has reached out to the family.
